Feast Day Supper for All Saints

Dining alone is not my favorite thing, but I am tired. I wanted to read and lick my wounds. Internet problems. Perfect a month ago. Today total failure. I don’t want to do the whole week from my phone. But I digress.

At a nearby, always good, always dependable place, …

Rigatoni con sugo di coda vaccinara. Abundant! The cook says 125g of pasta.

For dessert, one of my favorite seasonal things on the face of the earth, Puntarelle! These had less anchovies than I like, but they hit the spot.

After, they offered some homemade amaro.

Not bad.

Beautiful feast day.

Pontifical Mass.

Roman food.

Now for some serious rack time… though I may have to fisk something ere I can sleep.

Gratitude and prayers for those who made the trip possible.

    Fr. Z, I am happy you made it safe and sound to Rome. I look forward to your future dining and conference reports.

    You are missing TEOTWAWKI in New York and New Jersey though. Keep them in your prayers.

    I’m glad you got there safely too with all the airlines struggles this week with Hurricane Sandy. My guardian angel prompted me to pray for your trip at mass this morning. I hope and pray all goes well for you and your trip, Father.

    Puntarelle, so delicious, such a pain in the posterior to make. I tried it once and that’s cured me from trying to assemble a puntarelle salad ever again. Was it a pricey dish? (For something like that, cost be damned!)

  13. Simon_GNR says:

    That’s hardly what I’d call a supper – it looks more like a dinner to me.

  14. frjim4321 says:

    . . . using ingredients available in the states . . .

    There’s the rub.

  15. Joe in Canada says:

    as much as I love anchovies, I never thought of putting them in a dessert before!
